Trijicon designed the highly versatile 1-8x28 VCOG Riflescope, or Variable Combat Optical Gunsight, to give users the flexibility they need to effectively adapt to changing conditions—from rapid CQB to long-range marksmanship.

It features a 1-8x zoom magnification with a 28mm objective lens to maintain a low profile with reduced snag hazards for fast and stealthy movement. The fully multi-coated optical system is designed to improve light transmission, reduce image distortion, and deliver optimal visibility in any situation. For engaging targets quickly and accurately, this gun sight is equipped with an MOA-based segmented circle-crosshair partially illuminated reticle located in the first focal plane. It has an LED-based illumination system with 11 selectable brightness levels, including two that are night vision device compatible and one that is ultra-bright for clear visibility in full daylight conditions. To get you precisely on-target the turrets adjust at 1/4 MOA per click with a broad 120 MOA adjustment range on both the windage and elevation.

Its 7075-T6 aluminum alloy maintube is durable yet lightweight and is treated with a hard-anodized matte black finish. To withstand extreme conditions the housing is nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging. The built-in Picatinny/Weaver thumbscrew mount provides strength and stability while mounted and precise re-mounting repeatability without having to re-zero the sight.

Optical Performance

  • 1-8x zoom range offers reliable use at close quarters and longer range
  • 28mm objective lens diameter
  • Fully multicoated optics ensure bright and clear high-contrast views with limited distortion
  • Generous 109' field of view at 100 yards on 1x ensures maximum situational awareness, 13' on 8x improves accuracy at longer ranges


  • MOA-based reticle design is optimized for precision shooting at all distances
  • Illuminated segmented outer circle is ideal for short distances on 1x power, with red center dot and non-illuminated crosshair for improved ballistic drop compensation and wind adjustment at higher power and longer range
  • First (front) focal plane placement: When magnification is adjusted, the reticle size changes proportionally, so subtension values remain accurate at all powers
  • Red LED illumination is easy to see, even in bright daylight
  • Eleven total brightness settings with two that are night vision compatible and one super-bright setting for full daylight visibility
  • Individual "off" positions between each intensity level enable a fast return to desired level
  • Powered by one lithium or alkaline AA battery

Use and Handling

  • Designed for the both-eyes-open "Bindon aiming concept" style of shooting
  • "Fin" zoom lever makes magnification selection fast, easy, and precise
  • 1/4 MOA per click impact point correction
  • Broad 120 MOA windage and elevation adjustment range
  • 20 MOA of travel per rotation
  • Tethered caps protect turrets without the possibility of losing them while making windage and elevation adjustments
  • Long 4" eye relief provides a generous eye box for flexible mounting positions
  • Massive 11.8mm exit pupil on 1x, 3.5mm on 8x
